Case management is a requirement for all funds awarded under this RFA, with a minimum requirement of one check-in following award. Community Partners Grant Program staff may request updates at any time. Grants over $50,000 will have more stringent reporting requirements. Other requirements associated with case management and reporting will be addressed in the Application Training + Q&A session, and attached in the ZoomGrants application Library.  

Applications will become the scope of work of the agreement.
